well short story, got hit by a car on my iro fixie, the good thing is i only bruised my ass and my lower back. the drivers insurance is paying me a total of $4000 ($1500 for medical, $2500 for damaged property, frame, and my time)
i work at a bicycle shop and we can get serotta, cinelli, and eai.
im deciding if i should just buy this eai bareknuckle frame which is what i was originally going to buy for $500ish before i got hit by a car, but the tubing is dudacciai
the cinelli supercorsa pista is what i wanted to get before i decided on the bareknuckle, but it costs $1100, its niobium content is half as much as serotta
on the other hand the serotta frame, i can get custom fitted, with the highest niobium content of either of the above for ~$1500
a person from eai i spoke with said that the bareknuckle frame might have reynolds in it, but he didnt know which one. to me he didnt seem too certain about what the frame was made of just that it was dudacciai
